    First of all, a close friend of mine recommended this book to me. Reading the description of the book, I was sure that this is a girl material. I was so bored by reading the description. I am not very much into girlie stuff. But this sounded too much.First of all, the language was not so good for me. It was so complex. It had lot of shortcuts which not a even a text-junkie like me was able to understand. It takes lot of effort to complete dialogue.Secondly, when I started reading the book, I was bored to hell. I had no idea why i started this one (as I have a habbit of complete reading the book which I started). I was cursing my friend was going on with the book.10 pages done - still cursing my friend. 25 pages - still cursing my friend. 50 pages - I lost myself in the book.If it was someone else, they would've completed it in just a day. As a slow reader (I read fast, but get no time to read), it took me 3 days.. To be precise, 5 hrs. I was so involved in the back. It was so awesome. There was no girlie about the story. I felt it so interesting. Lost in the story, I got accustomed to the complex language. A perfect read...

    There are some books which are interesting. There are some books which are boring yet worth reading. And there are books like this which are utterly stupid! I don't understand from which century women began finding abusive men attractive but this trend is purely disgusting. Let me list out the reasons why this book is NOT a good read.1) Cliched attractive protagonists.2) Abusive love interest.3) Annoying Bella-Swan type protagonist.4) Cliched dramatic grand events.5) Abusive love interest who could not handle rejection.6) Large number of unnecessary characters.7) ABUSIVE LOVE INTERESTThat man actually ambushes one fine day, pulls her by her hair and calls her a bitch because she didn't want to marry him and then three years later forces himself onto her. Say what?? How can anyone find that attractive?Writing style: It was bland. Nothing about the narration or the character descriptions interested me. And all those abbreviations or whatever they were became annoying after a point because no one uses them. Maybe in Kanpur they do. Wherever I live, they don't. I've read this book because many told me it is entertaining but dud! So whoever is going to read this book, please do NOT read it expecting it to be some kind of epic bollywood love story because it is not.

    Disclaimer: I received a paperback from the author via The Book Club in return for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for the same.The story is set in Kanpur and begins with Nandini working as head of design in a private firm along with her BFF Sneha. Both are hardworking women. While Sneha is married with a little son, Nandini is unmarried and lives with her parents.Into the scene enters Aditya, who takes over the company. He makes a few changes keeping back all the staff. At this point, the reader gets to know that Aditya and Nandini go back a long way and something’s irritated the hell out of Aditya. He’s out to take revenge, big time.Spoiler warning from here on... read at your own risk.

    This was nice little book but same old story yet told in a better way. rom-com served in a fast little book and I liked it immensely. It needs to be revisited in near future.

    FIRST IMPRESSION:First impressions can often be misleading, and sometimes starkly in contrast to the actual reading experience. The book's cover was a pleasant yellow tone, with the silhouettes adding just enough mystery element to create the right amount of intrigue and elicit a second glance. Right Fit Wrong shoe is a quirky title that made me wonder if perhaps, the industry has evolved into some offbeat, completely unique books that fall under the 'romance' category by maybe not be one of the run of the mill books.Right Expectation, Wrong Assumption.REVIEW:Some books begin with a bang, with an unforgettable scene that would set the pace nicely for the story that follows. This scene might even determine the amount of interest the reader might show in reading the book as quickly as possible. But this book obviously skips that spectacular opening scene. Nadhini and her colleagues are shown discussing the arrival of Adhitya, a business tycoon, in town. Each of the ladies want to become the 'small town girl the celebrity marries'. A total of six characters are introduced within the first three or four pages.Nandhini, the female protagonist, is nervous, the anticipation and shock of finally (maybe) meeting Adithya (not for the first time but after a long time). Why should she be, though? Because she has history and at one point in the past they shared an awesome chemistry. His geographical proximity is unnerving for Nandhini. Biologically, she exhibits all the symptoms of a nervous wreck, physical manifestations of which include her dropping things, sweating profusely, getting distracted and of course, the ever present surge of adrenaline.The hormones are to blame. The brain has always been one confused human organ, often sending misleading signals, the receptors for fear and desire are, maybe, so close together that things such as the Stockholm Syndrome are a possibility. Nandhini and Adithya have a history of being attracted to each other, but the first few impressions we get of him are a stuck up, insanely rich, egoistic businessman who buys the company where she is working in (apparently) just to take revenge of her. But then he is also jealous of the attention she gets. This introduction and his subsequent poor treatment of Nandhini mar his image beyond repair that no matter how sweet he acts in the flashback, it creates no impact whatsoever. The lackluster narration notwithstanding, the past does not pack enough of a punch to justify either of their actions.But what put me off the most in the woman's reaction to it. She is frightened of him, yet she loves him. She loves him, but his demeanor frightens her. Anastasia Steele could get a tip or two from how Nandhini reacts to being in close proximity of a handsome, insanely rich business man. Not to be too hard on the character alone, neither of the protagonists make much of a positive impression, or rather, a reason for the reader to root for them and hope they get together. Halfway through the book I found myself thinking that if they got together I would really be disappointed with the girl. No brownie points for guessing what actually happened after I finished the book.While I have nothing against love - hate relationships, chauvinistic, dominant men and submissive women are two of my least favorite species on the planet. There is a fine line between love and hate, and as long as both the protagonists have valid reason for parting ways (not one their family imposes on them) as individuals, the story might be interesting. But the story fails miserably in this regard, becoming a series of cliches, written one after another in quick succession, aided and abetted by dialogues from bollywood. Even chapter titles are mostly hindi one liners and for someone who does not understand the reference, there is a detailed glossary at the end, something I found out only after I had completely finished reading the book.This point has been highlighted for the benefit of other readers. This book has a fairly detailed glossary of the most important often used phrases in the book. And here, I place an appeal to the authors and publishers (in general, not limited to those of this book) to either mention in the index that there is a glossary (it becomes useless otherwise, not to mention being immensely frustrating to find it out after finishing the book) or put it beforehand, or intersperse meanings as a footer in the same page where the words and phrases are used.The writing slowed down my reading, with sentences in brackets (like in this review) distracting me from going with the flow instead of serving their intended purpose (to provide additional information). Excessive usage of these has cleverly (but not completely) disguised the utter lack of proper punctuation (which is noticeable if you do read two pages at a stretch). The story itself has a few funny moments, sometimes slapstick humor, but the occasional forced jokes fail to elicit more than a laugh as the story progresses. Readers are informed not to make too much about the guest appearances of Nandhini's friends in the first few pages. If you cannot keep them straight, read the helpful first page the author has given. But other than that, only note the characters who have been named in the summary. They are the game changers. The rest are blink and miss.I have never agreed and probably never will agree to the fact that for romances to be interesting, they have to start with a clash or have a painful past history of breakup due to the misunderstanding of the lead pair. Neither do they need domineering characters, male or female. If one person dominates the other and tries to bully them, the romance element is lost at that moment. It is no longer a romance. A tale of love - hate, maybe. To be completely honest, even M&B could not get away with writing about a chauvinistic, egoistic, overgrown man child who throws temper tantrums because he could not get the girl he desires, and ends up creating a fear in her as he returns to 'take his revenge'. No matter how else he is portrayed, a man who manhandles a woman and abuses her can never become a hero, much less a protagonist who is desired by many. A girl might go behind a suave Christian Grey, real women need substance and character.This book might interest you if you like filmy romances where damsels in distress wait (with fear tightening their guts and knotting their stomach) for the black knight in tarred armor to plunge the knife of love through their hearts. Give this a miss if weak female characters and egoistic grey heroes put you off.WHAT I LIKED:The Cover. The overall silhouette effect is eye catchingAlluring titleWHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER:Random punctuation, lousy editing, story seeming to have very many rushed scenes and jumpy paceBollywood dialogues, one liners used liberally (even for names of chapters) confuses those who are not ardent fansCliched story. Characters lack depth.VERDICT:Read it if you must, but better read some other work by the author to change the impression you will have about her. (Not that I have read them, but I remain hopeful). There is potential.

    Varsha Dixit's Only Wheat not White and the “aura” of her being 3 times Bestseller writer of Rupa Publications raised my expectations a lot for Right Fit Wrong Shoes. Before I go further let me point out clearly a few oddities [or should I say the norm nowadays] this novel has-​The Bollywood setting where you can almost see a Raj and Simran dancing around the trees. Her usage of dialogues “Abe palat” added to the ambiance. If you read the blurb of the story, words like “BFF” and “millennium bhehenji” stare at your face. So please, first read the blurb before picking up this for the author has not hidden the fact that this is how her style or tone will be in this particular novel. A total contrast to Only Wheat Not White, if I may add. The story line is nothing new yet when told every time you have that lump in your throat and think back to those days when you met your Mr. Right. That cute college type romance which every “mother of a daughter hate kind” yet have one tucked in their secret cupboard.It had all the ingredients of a shadowy villain, a sexy hero, a fiery damsel that will make those butterflies flutter in your stomach. So when Nandini walks up to Aditya and tells him “it’s over”, the romance quotient just heightens up.Desi Style Verbal MannerismsWhen in Rome be a Roman. Ms. Dixit took this cliché very seriously. Hindi words have been sprinkled liberally all over the story. I almost felt the author was having a damn good time using them. A hint of laughter, a touch of passion and loads of oomph factors. But only for those who are well versed with Hindi. I don't grudge Ms. Dixit her liberal use of the colloquial language for in my everyday life I too think in “Hinglish”.I am curious. How many Indians truly speak totally in Hindi or English? Do we not mix our languages too? So why can't a protagonist do the same? If this was written by an Italian writer, would we have found it so jarring? I remember going gaga over some lines I read recently where the hero shouted out,"Venite a me il mio tesoro!" Soja cried out in disbelief.Now in the world of all teddies, I had no clue what " Venite a me il mio tesoro" meant yet they sounded so soothing to the ear. No? Google Uncle later told me later it meant ‘come to me, my darling.”So when Nandini mocks,"Heavy fundas dude!" why do I gape at my screen and look all puzzled? The new born Italian in this Indian mocked me. Tut Tut!Few years back I had read a book called Liza of Lambeth by W. Somerset Maugham, the use of the dialect and the language used was that of the working class of London and this made it a very difficult read. For me. But even a struggling reader, like me, had to admit, it could not have been otherwise. For that matter, Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe almost made me give up on my Masters. For a light romance, Varsha Dixit’s “Right Fit Wrong Shoe”, gives us a picture of a complete desi romance and I loved the feel of the dialogues, setting and of course the chemistry.The Romance Quotient..Is burning hot. Aditya comes across as a late early 80's Mills and Boon alpha hero and Nandini is no damsel in distress. A combustive combination with a lot of sizzling moments.The family...I loved the Indian feel of the story. Modern India. No sadness even if the couple had separated. Nandini has a life and she lives it. I suppose that's what attracted me to this novel in the first place. A simple boy meets girl - drift apart and then the events leading to an HEA moment. Some books should definitely be a light read in this heavy news infected society.Reason for my star Rating can be checked here ..

    Right fit wrong shoe is the typical Bollywood styled tale of a man and women who have a love hate relationship. Our protagonist Nandini is the smart woman who works for an Ad agency which is taken over by her arch “enemy” Aditya. The man much to his reputation makes it his life mission to make her miserable. What could possibly be the explanation for his erratic behavior? Obvious isn’t it. Nandini and Aditya have an history – one from which either of them have moved on emotionally. What follows is the story of their past and how it ends up impacting their present.The story as such was good. I was hooked and wanted to know what exactly happened between Nandini and Aditya. I also wanted to know what the future had in store for them. That was purely the story and the writer’s imagination at work. However, the language and the swap between past and present left me a bit disoriented. To me, all the characters seemed a bit too hyper and emoted more than what was required. The characterization as such was typical of such a book and the writer did do a good job of bringing out various shades of the characters barring their emotions.The constant injection of Hindi words just marred the charm that the story actually had. I do understand that the writer probably felt compelled to put in all those words as the story was set in Kanpur but in my opinion that wasn’t really attractive and didn’t deliver what was intended by her. The book could have used a bit more of sharper edits and careful proof reads which would be actually supported the really good story that the writer had.MY SAY: An interesting story

    I have always been a fan of love- hate relations. The irresistible love and ever repulsive hatred used to pump up my veins with a rush of adrenaline. Nandini and Aditya's love is so touching and rendered palpably. I have become a fan of author's narration. The quirky humor and snappy hurdle of words leave us panting with zest.Author herself hints through one of the characters about the overworked mills and boons tales of Celebrity meets and undiscovered stunner, which works out as a justification for the cliche story line. The initial friction and discord as well as verbal attacks and counter-strokes are very lively and pulsating.Another commendable fact is the friendship between Nandini and Sneha. From saving friend's name a crazy cow to the insensitive exchange of curses, shows a deep friendship without emotional overture.A major setback of the story is the predictability. The twists in the story could be predicted right after the introduction of the male protagonist. Some areas of the book gave me the feeling of a different narration of the 'pyar mohabbat serials'. With such a great writing style, if the a little more effort was taken to bring about multifarious twists especially towards the climax, the book would have done wonders. Climax disappointed me. I had decided on a 4 stars till then but the last three chapters just oozed out the fun.

    While reading ‘Right Fit Wrong Shoe’, I often remembered an Indian television sitcom which was aired by Star Plus-“Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Do”; the similarities in both storylines are striking. Of course the sitcom had plenty other twists and turns, otherwise it would have been impossible to prolong the simple story for couple of years.What I’m trying to say is that the book plot has a lot of clichés, the usual humdrum of the sweet, pretty-little-girl-next-door falling for the rich, spoilt, handsome brat. I was rolling my eyes a lot when reading the book. But there were a few lines in the book which elicited genuine laughs, so the book isn’t that bad too. The language and the grammar in the book are good but excessive use of vernacular language is a huge negative for me (and the glossary of the Hindi terms didn’t help since I only looked at it after I had finished reading the book).To summarize-Positive points-Humor quotient is pretty decent, language is good.Negative points- Plot is clichéd, excessive use of Hindi terms put me off.Verdict: A light, breezy read that could be enjoyed if not much significance is given to the plot. Avoid if you are not a particular fan of Indian sitcoms, especially the Ekta Kapoor types.

    The editing is way too laxed. Punctuation marks are erratically thrown around, often ending up changing the meaning of sentences. As if that wasn't enough, the story line is so jumpy, with POV pronouns adding to the already created confusion, that finishing this book needs some effort.The book is a quick read, with the author not choosing to dwell on unnecessary stuff but sometimes it became so quick that I felt I was reading the outline for a scene rather than the scene itself. The end lacks the treatment it deserves and is wrapped too quickly, another put-downer.The author's naivete comes through. But you know that she is serious about her craft when you read her second book, which I think is her saving grace from more of my ranting.The book is a decent effort, and as a writer myself, I appreciate it. However, there was too much that wasn't paid attention to.If you've read this one and are as disappointed as I , pick up Only Wheat Not White and your spirits shall be lifted. If you haven't, no harm done if you decide to skip it.

    What does a woman want? Shoes, sex, money or love? And RFWS shall give it to her. The story of Nandini or as her hesistant paramour describes her 'lassi in a wine glass' is set in Kanpur. Her spirit is undefeatable; she mocks certain death (Aditya) and suffers stoically for love (Aditya, again). Her accomplice in all her escapades is Sneha Verma that function as a chaddi-banyan friend and a BFF to her. It encases a young women's thoughts on the society she survives in.RFWS isn't a particularly bad book, it' just not a good book either. Priced at INR 95/- and paged at 227, it's a breezy read if you are a sucker for mushy romance. All the titles of the chapters are Bollywood one liners or movie titles which is innovative to the point of craziness. Set in Kanpur, it's an Indian version of 'Mills and Boons' and honestly speaking, it should be judged strictly within those parameters only.There are dozen of characters introduced right at the start of the book and if you are not attentive, you may just have to re-read them to place who-is-who in the narrative. Even though it settles nicely after that as it starts to concentrate on the lives of two main protagonists - Aditya and Nandini. There are some really witty, charming moments peppered through the book between them that are the best bits in an otherwise standard Bollywood style love story disguised as a realistic take on modern love. The conversations between them are the best portions, their smoldering chemistry and playful flirtations are a few things that actually make this book not a complete waste. I even enjoyed the woman-to-woman conversations between Sneha and Nandini, though the hangover of sex-and-the-city type dialogues is pretty evident.Problem is, there is no element of surprise or unpredictability in the screenplay, and it is the kind of book that won't stay in your head once you are done reading it .The characters in Nandini's office disappear miraculously, never to come back till the end which raises doubt - what was the need of introducing them in the first place and create chaos at the start. And can anyone please tell me, what kind of office is this where hardly no one ever talk about work but ex-bf and relationships. It is even hard to imagine that even though Nandini visits Aditya's home every now and then, no one in the immediate family hardly bothers or know about the kind of relationship they have developed over the years. Considering the fact that we live in an age of extreme media intrusion, the hot shot business magnate Aditya's relationship with Nandini is never out in the open is again tad confusing.Coffee reads like these should not be over-analysed, but all other characters are typical Bollywood stereotypes and utter dialogues which are straight out of those family oriented Rashri Movies. It's idealistic and uncomplicated in its plot, its all characters are either good or misunderstood, and in the end everyone stays happy without any complaints. You see my point, it is constructed in a world where all families should stay under the same roof without the slightest bumps and makes a perfect universe around them. But i guess, i am just being cynical here.I don't know about others but i can't take even one more book (or even a movie) where someone from the older generation chides the younger generation to stop following their dreams and do as per the family wishes. It is the oldest cliché in writing, exploited in numerous movies ad nauseam. How you wish the writer came up with a better logic behind the break up of the two main protagonists rather than relying solely on such regressive and retarded ratiocinations.I am going with 2/5 for Varsha Dixit's debut novel, Right Fit wrong shoe. I felt like being transported to those 1980's Bollywood movies, where the parampara and pratistha of the parivaaar were kept ahead of your own wishes in life. It is corny and mushy but at the same time predictable and often senseless. It's got its heart in the right place, but its other parts scattered all over. Read it if you must.

    'Right Fit Wrong Shoe’ is a mix of typical 80’s M&B’s and Bollywood masala movies with beautiful, smart protagonists. Which is perfectly fine, since the blurb indicates the same and the cover I must say complements the blurb.The story opens with lovely Nandini receiving the news of the takeover of her company by handsome Aditya, with whom she shares a history. She dreads meeting him. Man on a mission, Aditya makes her life miserable the moment he arrives in the city. It was cute to see him adversely affected by her presence and even jealous of other men paying attention to her.The story oscillates between present times and flashbacks, telling us about the falling in love, the repercussions of the misunderstanding between the two and finally the twist.While Nandini’s character is perfect, handsome Aditya, at 30+ comes across a little childish and not in control. He is shown to be angry with her to the point of throwing things and bashing up people. Ideal families, a bosom friend, an aunty-type secretary and an alleged rapist complete the cast.Humor is a very individualistic taste. The story did make me laugh at places with the Bollywood dialogues and abbreviations. But it seemed that the author had tried too hard to inject humor in each sentence, which seemed a little contrived. Too many (analogies, explanations in brackets) worked like speed-bumps for immersion.My peeve with the book is the language errors and punctuation, the fault mainly lies with the editing. I felt I was drowning in the exclamation marks, semi-colons and question marks. With so many punctuations it seemed all the characters are hopping in excitement around me. It ended in tiring me out. I think the editors should have moderated and proofread better.I have read ‘Only Wheat And Not White’ by Varsha Dixit and liked it a lot. This one is probably her first or second book and it falls short due to high expectations set by ‘Only Wheat Not White’.A breezy read, if you are a die-hard Bollywood fan.

    This was my first book by Varsha Dixit an Indian author. I had expected this book to be a emotional and dramatic love story, as all the other love stories that I had read by Indian authors. But I was surprised that it was such a fun and light read. The book dose have some element of drama in it. As nothing can be digested without a little drama in a story especially in India ;). But apart from that it was an easy to read book which was able to hold my attention! It made me laugh and also cry. It had twists and bumps. And just when I thought that the worst is over it gets worse. And then finally better!The book introduces the heroin of the story Nandini Sharma who fall in love with a rich, sophisticated and handsome bad boy Aditya Sarin , who happens to be his next door neighbour. And whats more interesting is that both their families are really close. But the two end up starting on a bad note. The contrasts in there personality and the continuous infuriating but hilarious banter between them will make you laugh!Like all love stories start at the beginning, where boy meets girl, and then they fall in love, and then they face the obstacles and hardships. But this book starts from where all love stories end. And due to this reason I felt the book was able to intrigue me for a long time. I also enjoyed this book for the fact that it had a bit of a Jane Austen touch to it. If you are a Jane Austen fan and don't know what I'm talking about then go ahead and read the book! It will not disappoint you. The reason I am giving this book a three stars is because I usually don't find love stories that appealing, because as a reader I really appreciate a well researched book. But I would still recommend it to anyone who is interested in a reading something over a cup of coffee, or some one who wants to take a break from all the mystery and thriller books as I did.

    Right Fit Wrong Shoe is a 200 page book that one can finish in a single sitting. The book seems to be inspired by Bollywood movies, and if you are the typical chick flick kinds, you would enjoy this book. The story is about a young girl named Nandini, who hopelessly falls in love with one of the famous personalities of the country, Aditya. Sneha is Nandini’s BFF who is there to support her in all aspects of her life. In addition to this, there are numerous other characters in the book, all related to either Nandini or Aditya or Sneha. The story line is a bit cliched, and is the same that we see in all love stories: First the growing infatuation between the gauche Nandini and the natty Aditya which is followed by a misunderstanding, ultimately leading to a break-up and leaving both the characters with throes of anguish, only to be reconciled in the near future. The story is coupled with some scenes of revenge, the BFF Sneha looking out for Nandini, Aditya’s engagement to Gayatri and a secret that Aditya’s mother has kept from him. Although the reason for Aditya and Nandini’s break-up is kept as a suspense till the end, it was not difficult to guess the same at the first place.The writing in this book is pretty average, I did not find it enrapturing at all. The author has used some Hindi dialogues between Nandini and Sneha which allowed the reader to have some fun moments. All in all I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars. A Hindi movie fan may like this book as it is purely “Desi”. The teenage girls may relate more to this book as it delineates their fantasies and they may enjoy the story vicariously.

    Originally Published onwww.shanayatales.comRating Edit: 3.5 starsNote: This is the first book of a three-book companion series. A companion series is not a continuing series, which means that each book can be read as a standalone. And while these books do work as standalone reads, a fair amount of common, interconnecting threads run through them, which might be lost on people who read only one of these books. Which is why, it might be better to complete the trio, especially if you are someone like me, who needs to know everything about everything.My Review: This first book Right Fit Wrong Shoe, follows the love story of Nandini & Aditya. This one is very Bollywood-y in the sense that it is pretty predictable, and follows the tried and tested route. However, this did not really bother me, as complete originality is not what I absolutely need to enjoy romances. As long as the story is well told, I can still enjoy it. And Varsha Dixit sure knows how to tell a tale - she had already proved that to me with Only Wheat Not White.The thing that bothered me with this one was the style of writing and the editing. The persisting short forms, sms lingo, and misplaced exclamation & question marks are some of my pet peeves, and even romances are no exception for this rule. Read full review

    2019-04-16 11:31 though I have never read “Mills and Boon” stories but this book must be close to them based on whatever I have heard about them. Varsha Dixit is first time author and in her book “Right Fit Wrong Shoe”, she has captured urban middle class life with lots of cynicism and fun. This is one book where every chapter has a Bollywood movie name as title. There is a good amount of hindi dialogues throughout the book and lots of acronyms that I could not understand, many of them are cuss words. In summary, lot of crap but a fun book to read.The story essentially is about rich boy meets poor (not so much) girl. Both of them fight with each other but slowly realize their love for each other. After that a misunderstanding, revenge, fights, jealousy and a happy ending. Along with that, there are friends, families, lecherous colleagues, attempted rape, parties and all the possible masala. Sometimes, I wonder whether the book was written based on a movie story or written so that a movie can be made on this. Dialogues are too dramatic, scenes are just out of movie setting and theme a perfect for song and dance ritual. There are also references to Bollywood movies and the way dramatic scenes are enacted in movies. I also wonder whether urban India is really like this. If it is, then I seem to have missed it by a long distance or maybe it is generation gap.Even after all this, I enjoyed reading the book as long as I do not worry too much about details of the story. It was literally a breezy read.

    As the blurb says, the story begins at the ending of Nandini and Aditya Sarin's story. And from here you go in the reverse direction. As Aditya is returning back to India and to Nandini's town, she is worried sick of facing him. His last warning keeps ringing in her ears as she tries hard not to imagine what the encounter with Aditya might unravel. And what's worst is Aditya takes over the company Nandini works for. But one thing is evident. The sparks are very much there. So will the sparks lead to something more? Or will Aditya get his revenge? You have to read this novel to find out more.Things that I Liked:The way the story started. It keeps the reader guessing what might have happened before that has led to this path in the protagonists' life.The sense of humor. There are many instances that will make you laugh hard.The writing style and the narration were a plus point.The love - hate relationship between Aditya and Nandini. It left me asking for more.Things that I didn't Like:Too much bollywood-ish.I would have liked this book more if the editing was good.Dramatic ending!! Verdict: All in all, the book was a great read. I enjoyed reading it. Definitely had me hooked for the period I was reading it. I would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a quick and light read. But don't go for it if you are a grammar nazi!! If not, then pick it up and enjoy reading the spicy story of Nandini and Aditya Sarin.

    5 star..I love this book I read this book a while back but I keep rereading it because that's how much I love the book. I bought this book the usual way after contemplating about it forever in Crosswords. But this book was totally awesome. There was no time wasted and we were in the story head first. I loved the filmy titles of every chapter. That was one of my favorite parts in the book. I also enjoyed the bantering between the two MCs.There was so much chemistry between them. I am a movie fanatic and I really think this book will make an incredible movie. I read the book in one sitting because I am obsessed like that. I read the whole night because I wanted to know what happened next. The flashbacks were entertaining. The characters were all so well structured and some stereotypical and others not. I lended it out to few of my friends and everyone ended up loving it. Now, I have read tons of books by Indian authors and believe me, most of them are not up to par. Most of the books tend to revolve around BPOs and Engineering colleges. So, now I can genuinely appreciate and enjoy the book. I would recommend this book to anyone with love for a flair of dramatics, Bollywood and romance. I don't know why but I want to quote 'Movies.Masti.Magic'. I can't wait for the third book in the series.
